Never Enough Wool

NEWSLETTER

March/April/May 2015

Can you believe that we are halfway through March April already?  Neither can we, and since we are so close to the end of April, this has become a newsletter for May as well.  If anyone has an idea on how to slow down the passing of time, we’d love to hear.

What’s new at the shop these days? 

Liberty WoolLibertySweaterR New colours of Classic Elite Liberty Wool!  We have pretty patterns and more ideas than we could knit in a month of Sundays. Help us to knit them all!

SchachenmayrTahitiRKaitiaJaipurRBack from the depths of the storage room are Schachenmayr Tahiti and the Katia Jaipur. Both of these are very lightweight cotton yarns with long colour repeats. We have many thoughts about what can be knit in these beauties too!  (Barb forgot to mention there are new colours too!)

KatiaAmigurumiRLast but not least, we are introducing Katia Amigurumi. This yarn comes in small balls so that those of us who “only need a little bit” can have just that. Crocheters, you should know that we have a selection of ideas to make “Amigurumi”. 

Don’t forget the Knitter’s Frolic on April 25.  This event is held at the Japanese Cultural Centre, just off the Don Valley Parkway, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.  This will also be a “SAY HI TO DOUG DAY” here at the shop as Carol will be frolicking and Barb has a day off. 

Barb and Carol are valiantly fighting serious cases of “Startitis.”  If only “Startitis” included “Finishitupitis.”  In any event, be sure to check around the shop for new samples – so far there’s a nice little Tahiti summer t-shirt, an Authentic sweater … who knows what else will appear over the next couple of weeks.   

April showers bring May flowers.  What do May flowers bring?  Pilgrims.  How’s that for a corny ending?

Classes:

We attempt to keep our class fees at the lowest possible rates.  In order to do so, we ask that our students purchase their supplies here at the shop.  In addition, we offer class discounts to our students.  Please note that if you are not able to finish your project in the allotted time, you are welcome to continue attending the lesson times until you are finished.  

You must register for your class before class time.  Class times are generally Tuesday afternoon from 1-3:00 pm and Tuesday evening 7-9:00 pm.  Other times may be arranged to suit, but we will strive to hold classes primarily on Tuesdays.   Drop-in knitters are always welcome, space allowing. 

Building in Color – Michelle Hunter has done it again!  An afghan worked in multi-coloured techniques to expand your knitting horizons.   Our next class session is May 8, at 10:30 am.  The plan will be to meet and start the panel in question and then for homework, finish the panel to be ready for the next month.  There are ten colour panels, a class to discuss seaming, and another class to discuss the borders.  Cost is $25, plus materials and book. 

Back to Basics Cardigan – using the book from Paton’s and worsted weight wool.  This is a great project to learn garment construction.  We will be starting on April 7, at either 1:00 pm or 7:00 pm, and continuing through the month.  Class cost is $25.00, plus materials.

FairIsleHatRFair Isle Hats – In May we will teach the technique of fair isle knitting.  The project is a hat, made with worsted weight wool.  From two skeins of wool (one main colour and one contrasting colour), Barb will get three hats – an adult, a child and an infant!  We will start on May 5, at either 1:00 pm or 7:00 pm.  Cost is $25 plus materials.

Cables – Irish Hiking Scarf -- Interested in learning how to work cables?  This is the class for you.  The scarf is lovely and useful, and we can assist you in working up a hat and/or a pair of mittens.  (This might be a great holiday gift, by the way!)  We will begin on June 2, again at either 1:00 or 7:00 pm, and continue through the month.  Cost is $25 plus materials (estimated to be 2 skeins of worsted weight yarn/wool).

Continuing Events:

Sit ‘n Stitch:  Every Wednesday afternoon, from 1 until 3.  Bring your latest project and join us for some stitching, questions answered, tea, and lots of laughter.  Everyone is welcome!  

Saturday Stitching:  Every Saturday, from 2 until 4.  What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than with friends both new and old, some handwork, and some tea?  

Knitting Night:  Every Thursday, from 7 until 9.  Although it’s called Knitting Night, crocheters are encouraged and welcomed.  There is plenty of friendship, tea, and yummy goodies for all.
